Save Crackley Woods Event

It is understood that HS2 Ltd intend to build the Burton Green haul road, which would follow the proposed route of HS2 this year, as this is enabling work and can happen before the notice to proceed.

This means that HS2 intend to cut down trees in these woods BEFORE the project has received the final go ahead. Or in other words, parts of these ancient woodlands could be trashed and then HS2 is subsequently cancelled!

A family fun day and picnic has been organised to help raise awareness of the impact of the HS2 development on the Crackley Woods Nature Reserve.

The event, scheduled for 11.30am to 2.30pm on Sunday June 2, will include a family picnic time in the meadow area, along with some woodland activities and games for children.

The event will also include a guided (10-15 minute) walk to show people parts of the ancient woodland impacted by the HS2 project.

There will also be two longer walks where the HS2 is planed to go through Crackley, Roughknowles and Broadwells Woods.

The walks will start at 12pm and 2.30pm from the clearing in Crackley Woods next to Crackley Farm, and five minutes later from the Crackley Farm Greenway bridge.

Matt Bishop, who has organised the event through the group Walk the Line – Stop HS2, said: “The message is if people want to save Crackley Woods they need to come on the day, and they need to sign the petitions online.”
